"You can't repair a relationship that never existed."
This definitely applies to narcissists and others we go no contact from. I asked myself did a good relationship ever exist with any of the narcissists I went no contact from and the answer was a flat out "NO". All ACONS even if they hit the door and run and go NC, there is that thought inside of "fixing things". The entire world puts the pressure on for people to repair relationships with the name mother, sister, brother, cousin, uncle attached. What if a relationship never existed in the first place? We desired love from people who never gave us one hug in their entire life? The ideal fantasies reign in people's minds where reality is something else altogether. SGs especially realize they were never known, they were only labeled and put in the corner.
